I have a motto that if half the readers aren't ticked off at us, we're not doing our job. We can't please everyone, nor do we want to. The beauty of diversity and democracy is that we can have a difference of opinion.

Perhaps, but isn't that the question in this story? The subject in this story is also a private citizen that puts herself in a public position much like Ms. Holmes. If the statement is false then it should be pulled.

I've read that Ms. Ramirez-Holmes often attends city council meetings, wasn't it something scathing like, "she sits in the back row texting Mayor Hosterman and councilperson Cook-Callio......." (both of whom she works for?)
Perhaps we'll all recognize her on TV now-with the large scarlet "A" on her bodice.
Watch out Ms. R-Holmes the Puritans are on patrol!
Really, don't people have something else to talk about?

It the person that posted is the starter wife she would be able to support the accusations and deserve the opportunity to make the facts public. Perhaps there is a custody situation that prohibits her using her name.
When my mother found herself a member of the first wives club, no job, and kids to raise she wanted people to know who the two people were that were responsible.
From a perspective of social responsibility I have no tolerance for "the other woman".

From the perspective of social responsibility I have no respect for people who participate in character assassination, especially when trying to discredit someone's service to our community because one does not agree with her or his position or those with whom she or he associates.

Unsubstantiated claims on an anonymous blog is NOT evidence of lack of character but making those unsubstantiated claims IS evidence of lack of character. It is character assassination at it worse because the blogger does not have to accept responsibility for the TRUTH of the information.
